For the past month or so, I’ve been looking (and feeling) like a straight up zombie – but for good reason. I gave birth to my second child – a daughter, Arwen – on June 5 (a month before her due date).

It’s hard enough being a mom to a preemie, but Arwen also spent her first 8 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – so I’ve been a wreck, and looking like one too.

Last week while visiting the mall, I stopped by Sephora. Really, I was just there to browse and to check out some new products. But what caught my attention – and what I ultimately left with – was an oldie but goodie. After spying myself in one of Sephora’s mirrors, I was horrified by the dark circles beneath my eyes. Sleep deprivation definitely didn’t agree with me…so I walked around the store perusing the store’s concealer options. Which brought me to the Benefit display.

Back story: I’m a big fan of Benefit’s Erase Paste. The results are amazing and I’ve raved about the product for several years – even turning many friends and readers into devotees. But I was convinced that the darkest shade, Deep, was still too light for me. So I’ve never really used it myself. I don’t know what made me re-try Erase Paste last week, but I’m so glad that I did. Deep is actually the PERFECT shade. Not only did it hide my dark circles, it imparted a brightness to my under eyes that made me look youthful and well-rested. It comes in 3 shades and a little goes a long way. You can apply with your finger or a makeup brush. But, personally, I think the most flawless finish results from using my beloved BeautyBlender sponge.

My complexion is similar to Beyonce or crazy-ass Halle Berry. So if you’re any darker than that, you’ll have to look elsewhere for a concealer. But if you’re lighter than that and you’ve been looking like an extra on The Walking Dead, you’d be a fool not to pick up a jar of Erase Paste.
